Expert Review

Jamaica Inn-an old-school luxury retreat run by the Morrow family since 1958-is more of a whiteglove experience compared with the Island Outpost resorts, but it still provides an intimate holiday beyond the gated compounds. During the inn's heyday, Winston Churchill painted in the garden, and Noël Coward and Errol Flynn paid regular visits. Now the retro ambience, highly experienced service-one staff member, Teddy, has worked there for 50 years!-and timeless style are cherished by repeat visitors. The property, on a private cove in Ocho Rios (lovingly called "Ochee" by the locals), boasts 47 spacious suites and four two-bedroom cottages, all with a private balcony or a veranda. The inn's alfresco restaurant gets top marks for fl avorful local cuisine, and the seaside spa offers holistic treatments. The north coast around Ocho Rios offers prime excursions, such as tours of nearby historic estates, including Prospect Plantation, Firefly, and Harmony Hall. Many of them have been restored and are now open to the public as museums, offering a glimpse of Jamaican island life as it once was.
